How Many Times Have You Flown Before?

Tue Feb 27, 2001 9:48 am

This would be an interesting question.

As I fly from time to time, I really can't remember how many times have I been on a plane.

How about you? How many times have you flown in the past?

Another interesting question, anyone here who has NOT been on a plane before? I seriously doubt it. Why? Coz this is similar to an 'Aviation Club' online and you got have the interest before you consider going on to an aviation website.

The fastest way of building up this kind of interest is to experience how great flying is.

Anyone here who hasn't been on a plane before?

All ideas are welcome!  Smile

I've flown about 56 times in my life (not much if you ask me). About 24 of those times were with Delta. Aircraft and airlines I've flown are on my profile...

I don't know. I've lost count long ago. I fly regularly though.
Last year I had 45 airline flights. This year so far (since Jan 1) I've hit about 15 with another 20 that I'm booked on.

I have flown hundreds of times, mostly on UA, AA, or BA. I fly between 30-50 times a year, and I have flown since I was a little baby so I don't know.

I have flown a little more than 100 times in my 15 years. I expect about 15 more flights this year.

About 4000 various trips in between in all sorts of aircraft from J3 cubs to F105's !  Big grin

I took my first plane trip when I was 14, did EWR-MCO..then didnt fly again till 2 years later EWR-LAS. After that I didnt fly on a plane for 5 years until I got a job with Continental. In my 3 years with them, thanks to non-revving, I've flown probably 30-40 trips. Now I'm in school working on getting my A & P so i have never really have time to fly anymore.......boy I miss being able to fly wherever i want on a whim.....*sigh*

A few guys I know told me that they have never flown before and will not be flying for the time coming, regardless the fact that they are over 20 already.

It is almost impossible that you have never flown before. Why? Today's world relies a lot on aviation and it is the quickest way of transportation.

I love to fly! I can't stop thinking of flying for even a minute. Heehee!

Just my 2 cents!  Smile
